Pretty dang wild. Glad you didn't have to pick yourself up off the deck!

Man, the timing was with you. You had no where to go.

I hate deer. I really do. Every now and then, I'll have to brake for a little tiny spring fawn and it's mother. They look really cute until I remember that it'll prolly grow up to an adult that tries to commit suicide in front of my bike. Regrettably, deer populations are increasing more than ever as fewer young guys are taking up hunting here in the northeast.

I had almost exactly the same thing happen to me a couple of years ago except it was a black bear that crossed my path. It was just starting to get dark and I didn't see the bear until it was right in front of me. Missed it by about a second.

Moose. One close call a few years ago in VT left me with a very healthy respect for these animals. I also once saw the remains of an 18-wheeler that lost a confrontation with a moose.
